Impressive but surprisingly easy dishes to make
may be a stupid question but is there any reason why I can't use red split lentils rather thay puy. I have unearthed a packet of puy from the back of the cupboard by they are past their sell by date. Have no idea about the difference.
honestly, where is everyone when you need them
if they are not too far past the date the weill be fine. How far gone are they\?
imvho I don't think it's a biggie. Puy letils stay whole so a bit more meaty in texture whereas red lentils will go mushy which I quite like tbh.
Ah, thank you! Donnie, January 2007 so probably a bit too far past. Will try with the red ones.
I've used both red and puy in veggie lasagnes and they just give a different taste but both are good. Puy definately have a meatier texture and a more sticky taste I think.
sticky???!!! What am I writing??? I meant a more stocky taste! Haven't even started on the wine yet!!
Jan 2007? They'll have years left in 'em yet...
really? Oh, OK then, will try those next time!
